Title: HGO Semi-Annual Pledge Drive
Post by: Pete on January 02, 2010, 01:15:04 pm
Well, it's that time once again.

I'm sure you're all aware that running a website like HGO is not free.  Every 6 months, I get a bill from my web host for $49.95.  So instead of placing ads to generate revenue, I've chosen the route of a user-supported site.  It works out to about $8.33 month to keep HGO online (in the interest of full disclosure, this $49.95 also keeps my other site, RTech Support Forums, alive as well).

So once again, I would ask if you've found HGO beneficial to prayerfully consider making a small donation.  If each person who posts here does just a little bit, then it is not a large burden on any one person.

If you would like to donate, please post your pledge here in this thread, or if you prefer, you may PM me and make your donation anonymously, and once we reach $50 in donations, I will PM you my PayPal information.

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much Sharon!

With the other donations I've already received, that brings the total to $33.00.

Just $17.00 more to go!

Thanks lb!

And with that, the first HGO pledge drive of 2010 comes to a close.

Don't worry if you wanted to give but missed out.  You'll have another opportunity 6 months from now.  ;)

I'm sorry I missed out on this one.
But will catch the next round. I have
been having trouble with my paypal.
When I receive money into it, paypal
is charging me 6.00. To have the money
placed into my bank account, they again
charge me another 6.00 for the same transaction.
When I pay for something, again the 6.00 charge.
As soon as they get this solved, I'll feel better about
using paypal again.

Again, I missed it.  I logged on yesterday and the HGO Semi-Annual Pledge Drive 'flashed' but then I couldn't find the thread.  I looked all over the site and couldn't find it.  Then I come on and here it is right under my nose.   :-\   Strange.

It was in the last place you'd expect to find it...  stickied and bolded as the very first thread of the General Discussion forum.   :P

Now that the pledge drive is over, I've unstickied the thread, but when a pledge drive is going on, the thread will be at the very top of the thread list in General Discussion.
